A free weekly newspaper in Yorkshire has ceased publication as a stand-alone title and will instead feature as part of a sister paper.
The news was announced on the front page of the last edition on the newspaper on Thursday in a leader by editor-in-chief of South Yorkshire Newspapers Graeme Huston.
Graeme told readers that the move was made to ‘bring you a better quality coverage of your home town.’
The article reads: “It is an exciting time for us and we are looking forward to bringing you more news and views from Thorne and the surrounding area.
“In the new look Thorne pages we will be keeping the community news section, what’s on, letters and sport from the Gazette, but also bringing you more news stories and pictures from your patch.
“To keep in touch we’ll be organising reporter surgeries for you to meet with one of our team.”
He added: “Finally I would just like to thank everyone involved in the production of the Thorne Gazette, its loyal advertisers, the householders who received the paper and its distribution team.
“I very much hope readers will continue to enjoy the Gazette in its new home as a section of the Free Press.”
The changes are also set to see improvements made to the Thorne Gazette’s website.
